This weekend, on 20th and 21st March, the Porta Jazz Association live streams six jazz concerts of 2019 and 2020. This event is themed “Meia-Maratona”, and it is available at the Munin Live international streaming platform.

Many musicians saw their performances and concerts postponed because of the pandemic. That reason shorted their usual activity. This event is aimed at giving back to the music scene as regards making music to audiences and keeping both the industry and fans connected. This will be a full weekend to the rhythm of jazz. Make the most of it!
